Singapore Airlines will launch non-stop services between Singapore and Seattle from 3 September 2019, using the Airbus A350-900.
The airline will be using its regular Airbus A350-900 and not the ULR variant, so this means that there will be three cabins offered on these flights: Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy.
The flights, SQ27 & 28, will initially operate three times a week, before increasing to four times weekly in October 2019. Schedules below:
|Route||Flight||Departure||Arrival||Flight Time||Days||Aircraft type|
|SIN-SEA||SQ28||0925||0905||14h 40m||Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun*||A350-900|
|SEA-SIN||SQ27||1040||1730||15h 50m||Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun*||A350-900|
*Sunday services to commence only in October 2019.
Singapore Airlines will deploy its Airbus A350-900 on the new route. The aircraft will feature 253 seats across three cabins, including 42 Business Class seats and 24 Premium Economy seats.
Singapore Airlines currently operate the ULR variant on the Singapore-Newark and Singapore-Los Angeles services, and the regular version is used on an assortment of destinations such as Cape Town, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Seattle lies within the US West Coast zone on the KrisFlyer award chart, so that means you will pay the same as you would for services to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Seattle will now be Singapore Airline’s fifth American destination and unlikely to be the last. The northwestern city has been gaining popularity in recent times, with many Asian carriers want to mount services to the booming city.
At the moment, Singapore Airlines does not have any partners operating out of Seattle, but given that they have a nascent relationship with Alaska Airlines (which hubs at Seattle Tacoma), it won’t be surprising if they start developing that relationship to provide onward connections to the rest of North America.
